Effective immediately, all Council Meetings will return to the in-person format. As such, Presentations and Public Hearings will be included in this switch. We ask for those who wish to listen in real time to attend in person.
If you wish to comment on the meeting but do not wish to attend for any reason, submission of your comments using the contact form on this page (under Presenting to Council) is still an available option. Your comments will be presented to Council during that section of the agenda.
Audio recordings of the meetings will still be made available afterwards.
Town council is composed of seven individuals (Mayor, Deputy Mayor and five Councillors) who serve for a four-year term. The current Council was elected in the fall of 2021. The next election is in the fall of 2025. It is Council’s responsibility to oversee the Town’s policy development and ensure, through the Chief Administrative Officer, that policy is implemented by the Town’s Administration. Council also sets the annual operating and capital budgets and its members sit on several boards and committees.
